Concise but comprehensive tables outline key information about findings and etiology, and provide additional commentary on pertinent clinical data, such as common locations, frequency, and prevalence of the described disease or disorder.


  • Organizes information according to classes of radiologic findings, mirroring the situation encountered in clinical practice
  • Uses easy-to-reference tables that classify findings, correlate differential diagnoses, and provide key adjunct clinical information to help in confirm the diagnosis
  • Includes more than 1,000 images and illustrations that are captioned by succinct descriptions, pinpointing key characteristics of disorders
  • Features completely rewritten chapters, Localized Bone Lesions and Joint Diseases, with all new radiographs, and a greatly expanded chapter, Trauma and Fractures, with many new and improved radiographs and schematic diagrams

Authoritative and comprehensive, Bone and Joint Disorders is an outstanding professional reference for the radiologist who must develop diagnoses and differential diagnoses of bone and joint disorders. This book is also of interest to residents preparing for their specialist examinations.
